Cassinetto

Sunday, October 20th – 2pm
Aileen Cassinetto + Humanity poets

Aileen Cassinetto hosts a reading and conversation involving two Bay Area poets, a writer from New York and a writer from Mumbai, all featured in the anthology Humanity

“In HUMANITY, one is presented with humanity’s explorations, often struggles, with itself in a variety of contexts.

Joining Aileen, San Mateo County Poet Laureate, are Eileen Tabios (St. Helena-based poet whose most recent collection is Witness in the Convex Mirror), Murzban Shroff (Mumbai-based author of Fasttrack Fiction) and Robert Cowan (New York-based author Elsewhen).
